Associate – Electricity Focus

We are seeking an Associate with an electricity focus to work in our Boston, MA; Washington, DC; San Francisco, CA; Toronto, ON or Sydney, NSW office.

The Associate will work on answering the most challenging problems facing the electricity sector of the future including: deep decarbonization, electricity market design, large scale electrification of transportation and other sectors, fundamental changes to utilities’ and others’ business models, reforms to resource planning, advances in technology, and maximizing the potential of big data.  Assignments involve a combination of hard-hitting quantitative analysis and policy/industry thought leadership.  

Associates work as part of a team on challenging and high-profile projects in a collegial and academically-oriented work environment. Brattle is large enough to be sought after to answer complex economic, regulatory, and financial questions for clients around the world.
